Practice/Organization Description

Orrick’s securities litigators have as their primary goal for each client to arrive at the best possible legal outcome at the most reasonable cost with the least negative effect on our client’s business. We approach each engagement with fresh perspective on the possible business impacts of the litigation or regulatory inquiry, listening carefully to and considering our clients’ concerns and expectations. At the same time, our lawyers leverage the collective experience of our Securities Litigation and Regulatory Enforcement Group so that best practices and strategies are employed on behalf of every client.

The group counsels and represents corporations, boards of directors, board committees and executive officers in a variety of litigation and corporate governance matters, including:

compliance with fiduciary duties

board composition

director compensation and qualifications

employee compensation

shareholder matters

strategic transactions

disclosure requirements

changes in control

financial reporting irregularities and

crisis management.

We develop and review clients’ compliance practices and procedures and assist corporations, individuals and committees in non-public internal investigations.
